    A small setback but I'm sure you will get there.

    Thanks for the inspiration guys. Once we're past the wedding on Thursday, I'll be tidying up the shed and it will go back in for another surgery.

    The car cover is the OEM prelude one from the USA. I believe it was never sold here.
    Managed to score it in absolutely mint condition from a dude in the states. Unfortunately it doesnt go all the way down over the skirts I'm not too concerned.

    I was actually referring to the feminine connotation than finding flaws in the cover. Awesome find indeed.

    As Bob said, just a minor set-back.
    You'll be fired up about her again in no time.

    Looking forward to seeing the new turbo setup!

    Great find on the car cover too.

    I have some news - I made a decision on a new wastegate. The purchase has been made and now we wait for it to be delivered..



    Its a Tial 38mm MVS in Black.
    Comes with all the vband goodies, and every spring you could possibly desire for setting the boost up.

    This wastegate is also optional water cooled. I will probably be doing this along with water cooling the turbo.

    I'm pretty sure the 38mm WG will suit my setup just fine.
    I've seen much bigger turbos using this same gate with no boost creep issues...

    It arrived today - now all I need is another turbo - and its custom manifold time.

    38mm should be just fine. My car is making 487rwhp with a 0.82 rear housing turbo and a 45mm gate. So 38mm should be plenty.
